Alcons expanding CRMS family

Alcons Audio has revealed the CRMSC-SRHOR surround system, a 2-way passive-filtered full range loudspeaker designed to meet the requirements of immersive cinema surround sound formats.

The system consists of one RBN202 pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 6.5in mid-bass for LF reproduction. The HF section has a 400W peak power input, enabling a 1:16 dynamic range with up to 90% less distortion from 1 kHz to beyond 20 kHz.

The patented 90-degrees horizontal dispersion of the RBN202 offers a stable coverage to a larger number of seats in an auditorium; Due to the “compression-less” principle of the pro-ribbon transducer, the system has a linear response at any SPL.

The CRMSC-SRHOR is designed as a matching surround system for the CRMSC Cinema Reference Monitoring system, or in any small to medium sized immersive surround system.

By utilising identical MHF components in a horizontal arrangement, a perfect voicing matching between screen and surround system is realised, resulting in an exceptionally wide and uniform sound stage throughout the entire listening area. The CRMSC-SRHOR can also be used as a main screen system in smaller applications, with low-frequency support.

The 15-degree slanted enclosure baffle together with the optional ACO colour option, allowing easy, low profile wall or ceiling mounting, also ideal for height channels in low ceiling rooms.

For full system performance, the CRMSC-SRHOR needs to be driven by an ALC Sentinel amplified loudspeaker controller. The Signal Integrity Sensing pre-wiring ensures complete cable/connector compensation between the CRMSC-SRHOR and ALC Sentinel, increasing response accuracy regardless of cable length and system impedance, resulting in tight and accurate mid and bass response.

Typical applications include surround sound system for small premium commercial cinemas, screening rooms, mix and post-production facilities and dubbing stages.
